was because there was not a large population here. i moved from los angeles and it's grown 50,000 people in those years. i don't want to see it grow further per se and i'm not a fan of developing more housing but to answer the question if we add more housing i would say loosen up the rules to allow homeowners to create inlaw apartments and that way you open up unit availability at some level for additional housing. other than that i would be opposed to any new construction of any major land use of development for housing including the three major projects in the pipeline. >> mr. rogers. >> if there is going to be development it could be in the trans bays terminal that is truly close to rapid transit. walking distance to bart. walking distance to the train that heads down south. this would be an ideal place for a development to occur. a place like park merced where you have 17,000 people would be moving in there. 6,000 parking stalls, a car dependent project, right next to 19th avenue. you folks know how bad that is. how would it be better if we had more people living in park merce
's not popular. i think we should cite jay walkers. they do in los angeles and i got a ticket 20 years ago and never did it again and i think we need to make the pedestrians aware of the rules and they must respect traffic as well and there needs to be outreach there. >> mr. lagos. >> yes, this is a very interesting question and it affects everybody, and i come from a city originally where the cars are king, los angeles, and one of the reasons i came here because the car isn't king here, but for pedestrians it is a problem, and i support reducing automobile traffic in certain parts of san francisco because i think there are parts of san francisco dangerous for pedestrians and bicyclists and i would support any proposal to reduce traffic and those zones in san francisco that have been shown to be dangerous for pedestrians. >> all right. thank you sir. mr. rogers. >> i hope this doesn't seem like a continual drum beat but if they make the park merced project go forward there is going to be a lot more traffic on 19th avenue. with that said i know the cameras are slowing people from going ac
cities can take elements of sfpark and implement it in the cities. los angeles is working on it. berkeley is working on a project. washington, d.c. is, too. cities are looking at parking management differently than the have in the past. >> later this year, we are gathering all the data we need to evaluate rigorously all our expectations of how this can reduce greenhouse gas emissions, congestion, improve transit speed, reliability, reduc. [applause] >> good evening. i'm the director of transportation. for me, this is not the academy awards. this is the all-star game. the folks sitting over here are truly the all stars of the city. i've had an opportunity to work with ed, harlan, and jocelyn. behalf of all of us. we are also very lucky to have a bunch of people from sfmta, many of them are here. my job is to introduce the awardees. please join me and give a hand for jay primus, george reynolds, steven lee, and lorraine fuqua. >> thank you. this is a tremendous honor. it really does feel fabulous to be recognized. one of the relief fund things about this project is that it is just complex e

. at the request of supervisor campos the city requested a comparison of ethics in san îg:]Ñand los angele identifying ways our ethic laws could be strengthened. as supervisors, what if anything would you propose to strength the city's ethics laws. i will start with mr. davis. >> strong ethic laws are essential. what is happening with our sunshine task force and hope davis can speak to this since she recently served on the task force. these need to be strengthened and one problem we have is around enforcement. i would like to see more of the ethical violations of larger committees, some of which are operating, for instance, in some shady areas of law. one was the run he ed run, the committee for mayor ed lee last year and the campaigns that aren't swaying the politics of city, the way the run ed run campaign did. so i think that is one the issues and improving our good government and ethic laws in san francisco. >> miss breed, would you like to address the question? do you want me to repeat it? >> yes. >> sure. a recent chief civil grand jury report, at the request of supervisor c
thank the mayor and the superintendent and the superintendent of oakland and the superintendent of los angeles. we were together recently and the mayor mexed me and said thank god we're in san francisco and oakland and l.a. have other challenges ahead of them and i think one of the things i want to highlight is the relationships that we have and the relationships that have been built in particular in the superintendent zones because i think we've recognized that community really matters and when we got the sig funding we were embattled with our communities. this was two and a half years ago and we -- people were reluctant and we took a risk and i am glad that we d i am glad that we kind of said this is unacceptable for any of us and should be unacceptable for you as well, and we took some big chances and fortunately we came out ahead and i am grateful for that because it was one of the scary moments that for years and years none one has been willing to take that chance and we did. i feel like we're starting to be better about getting ahead, and forecasting what the challenges will b
happened. i think jerry west is responsible as a great player and architect of all the los angeles lakers' championship teams and a member of our executive board involved in every player-personnel decision that the warriors make it. we purchased a dame last week that played in bismarck, north dakota and this december that team will began play in santa clara was the santa clara warriors in the new arena that we're constructing in santa clara. we hired mark jackson as the coach. but this is not about waiting five years for a great new arena to become a great franchise. we are heavily investing in both the team and the fan #kg:íw experience now. this summer there has been more investment about $11 million in oracle arena than there has been any other time since the major renovation in 1999. and one thing i would probably not expect you to recognize on that slide is a 7' center, which usually doesn't go along with the warriors. andru gagot, one the top centers in the nba will begin play for the warriors in about a month from now. part of the fan experience is in the arena, warriors fans as y
country. some examples being in a joint venture they did the mta side in los angeles, a $600 million, contract and the joint venture partners some year ago was obayashi so there is a working relationship there. >> they did the golden gate bridge, and the south approving $58 million. and the waste water treatment plant, all concrete, $50 million themself and not subcontracted. they did a large dam, and southern california for $94 million, all concrete work, slip ways. and just recently, the warm springs extension $137 million. they are what i would call the 97 percent level, which is the reason that we got them to the bidder they need to move on to the next job with a crew and they are bringing subcontractors. and they have by experience, they have 18 percent sbe participation which is slightly exceeded our goal. the largest of those sbe contracts is actually $15 million out of the $20 million which is the land of oso brothers and hey wood, they are a very good concrete finisher and i worked with them on other jobs and in other people's bids too. the largest single subcontractor is no
cities including los angeles and seattle have developed strong and effective policis and i'm supporting the department and the domestic violence consortium and groups to establish such a policy in san francisco to make us a leader in combating domestic violence in our communities. also today i stood with a number of my colleagues on the board, supervisor campos, kim, and supervisor olague, who has helped me and a grassroots coalition of senior and disability advocates. it's been a several-year effort from the grassroots organizations and leaders in many of our collaboratives as well. as background in 2011, i convened with supervisor olague and others and seniors and disability action. because this is a sector of our community that is growing and will face increasing challenges as they age in place. san francisco's official policy is to support seniors to age in place. however, san francisco has no comprehensive strategy for serving those by choice or circumstance live in residential hotels. a form of housing while relatively affordable and close to transit presents its own challenges
and los angeles after that as well. las vegas is a 70,000 square foot club. that is quite different. >> thank you. any questions from the public? yes. >> well good evening commissioners. i am also a long time 22 year resident and i want to discuss and also present to you i have seen a lot of positive changes in this one is a good one. during that time some 13 years ago there was a very cool selma chang high restaurant located there and it now closed and the lounge and if you remember and it's now closed. a great place to be to hang your hat and really the wind of the world and i want to show you my positive feelings about having this dining come to the area. as you also know even down on union street there is a asian street fair restaurant called [inaudible] and that opened after the loma parada earthquake and revitalized that nairksd there so i am hoping with this new venture that happens at one kearney street as i understand it and welcome and not to make it too pricey. >> we will get an early bird special going. >> all right. any other public comment? seeing none the matt
for california as well. [applause] whether it's riverside county, whether it's los angeles, whether it's the central valley, whether it's the san francisco bay area secretary lahood has been responsible. he's been available for phone calls. he's listened to the reasons for projects and he has moved ahead. would you give him a big round of applause please. [applause] >> well, it's time to say a prayer. it's bottom of the ninth. they have two on and one out, so everybody -- if the giants win this i think they can win the series but they need to win this so let it happen please. i can't tell you how important i feel this project is. i also can't tell you how hard it is to build anything in san francisco, so this project must move ahead. i think commerce depends on it and i think people depend on it. nancy said it very well but let me just say what the ridership is expected to be. when this central subway opens in 2019 daily ridership along the third street line is estimated to be 43,700. this is expected to rise to 65,000 people per day in 2030. this project is estimated to have

de prima in 2009. and he moved to san francisco in the early '70s from los angeles, but really has become embedded in the mission district. and i know that supervisor campos is going to make a couple of remarks in a moment. alejandro, i know, is a great teacher at san francisco state where i taught many years. his students see him as a mission visionary. he's also someone that works collectively with other poets. i pulled this off my shelf, alejandro from 1975 from third world communications with the intro by maya angelou. [speaker not understood]. you were an early leader in bringing together communities. i also wanted to say that as you were honored at [speaker not understood] in july, i was very proud to be there with many san francisco state people, some from the third world strike, some that came after. it was just an honor to be there with you as mayor ed lee and the whole arts establishment kind of acknowledged you as our poet laureate. and i know at that ceremony you also said that you expect to see 11 of us here to at some point at roll call really follow-up roll call wi
that are very important and will get muni work. it works in los angeles. over a million people a day use public transportation and during the commuting hours the buses are moving every seven minutes so it can work. i have seen it work in other places. the issue with the free bus pass if we have them all of the children are entitled to them because their parents are paying into it, and if not i know it could be an issue with money but i'm not just for giving a pass and there is no correlation it's going to improve and kids are going to go to school so i am kind of hesitant on that. thank you. >> all right. thank you. our next question, parking, parking meters. what is your position on variable rate parking meters and metered street parking on sunday? we will begin with mr. rogers. >> well, parking on sundays in the portolla valley area is a bad idea because people stay there all day. i am sure everybody will agreeing with that, but when it comes to parking i think that this is the solution to the short fall of muni is to provide tickets and be able to give this money to muni to a
